Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with this series of ground-breaking monologues, originally screened on BBC TV, and then Radio 4, International Theatre and the A Level syllabus.

A Cream Cracker under the Settee
We meet Doris, an old lady who has had a fall while dusting where her home-help Zulema has missed and then looks back over her life and marriage as she reflects on her predicament and dusk begins to fall.

A Chip in the Sugar
Graham lives with his widowed 'Mam' Vera. Vera has taken up with an old flame who is proposing marriage to her and eviction from his parents' house to a hostel for Graham. Will it be 'all change' or a return to stultifying normality for him?

Her Big Chance
Lesley is an aspiring actress, who, after a series of unpromising extra roles on TV shows such as Crossroads, is offered what she believes to be her big break as the adventurous Travis in a new film. But it's for the West German market, and the director has requirements for Travis that Lesley is uncomfortable with; how far should she go in pursuit of her dream?
